Throneum - Morbid Death Tales [Old Temple - 2021]

Morbid Death Tales is the seventh album from Bytom, Poland’s Throneum. It severs up eleven slices of evilly wonky 'n' crudely glamouring blacked death metal, which at points just barely hangs together as batters, sears, and crashes its way along.

The album was originally released back in 2016 on Hell’s Headbangers. Here from late last year is a CD reissue on Old Temple. For this release the project is a two-piece, taking in The Great Executor- vocals, bass and drums. Diabolizer- drums, and boy do the pair make one hell of blackly ramshackled racket.

The album opens with “Darkness Of Another Circle (I)” which starts with a warbling and wavering monk chant meets sudden feedback fork intro.  It then kicks in a mid-pace death metal riff, that’s swarming with woozy blacked guitar harmonics. The pace suddenly and sloppy speeds up with baying grunts, battering and careering drums, angular evil and wonkily seesawing riffing. As move on we have smarting and manic cymbal batter meets discordant almost organ-like riffing of “The Great Project Of Satan”.

Moving into the second half  of the album we have the blurring gallop meets derange crashing cymbal rush of “Withered Weeds” which at points is like rapid and blacked hardcore. We have the lumbering angular seesaw of “Cacus” it features a winding down sinister fair organ riff, a blend of grim spoke & harsh spoken, clip-clop drum pattern, and distant/ wavering monk chants. With the album playing out with the bluntly crude marching rhythm, droning riff swing, and hissed to croaked vocals of "Psalm18(17)1" which finishes with wonky wavering and drifting monks chant suddenly hit by a reverberating growl.

If you cherish wonky and crude blacked death metal that bays, drones and grimly slugs itself along then Morbid Death Tales will certainly appeal. Drop by here to check it out.
